Testing Guidelines for Candidates

Quiet Please!
The Testing Center endeavors to provide you with a quiet and undisturbed environment. Please take special care as you arrive and leave to maintain that quiet atmosphere, both inside and immediately outside of the testing areas. Thank You!

No Show/Cancellation Guidelines
Candidates who wish to cancel a scheduled assessment may do so without penalty at least 24 hours in advance of the assessment start time. Candidates who fail to cancel or who do not arrive for a scheduled assessment will be responsible for a $20 No Show/Cancellation Fee for each missed appointment. The fee must be paid prior to taking any future assessments at Athens State University.

Candidates who cancel and reschedule assessments repeatedly (more than two times) with 24 hours’ notice will be required to pay a $20 No Show/Cancellation Fee for any rescheduled assessments.

Late Guidelines:
Being late is defined as arriving 15 minutes after the appointment time. If a student calls in before their scheduled time indicating that they will be late but not more than 15 minutes, their appointment will be moved to the next available slot in the same day if there is an opening. Otherwise the candidate will need to reschedule. The individual will be required to pay the $20 No Show/Cancellation Fee for any rescheduled assessments.

A candidate arriving 15 minutes or more after the scheduled appointment will need to reschedule their appointment and is considered a No Show. The individual will be required to pay the $20 No Show/Cancellation Fee for any rescheduled assessments.

Valid photo I.D. is required for ALL testing. No exceptions to this requirement will be made.
The primary form of identification must be a current government-issued photo ID card with the cardholder’s signature (Example: Current Driver License). For specific assessment ID requirements, please view the Identification Requirements.
